Hi All,


Can any one provide the Liferay EE API.
Am able to find http://docs.liferay.com/portal/6.1/javadocs-all/ link which tells these are the CE API.(
Liferay 6.1.1-ce-ga2 Internal API Documentation).

Am not able to understand why there is no EE API available, Since Liferay is open source.

Any help is welcome.


Thanks
Olaf Kock

The EE API documentation is available to the EE customers, downloadable from the customer portal.

Note that Liferay CE is Open Source under the LGPL license, but Liferay EE comes under a commercial license - though with source code (for customers).

Guru patil:
What is the difference between CE and EE API.


The API for the core portal should be the same. As patches come out at different times, there might be small differences, but typically the interfaces should be identical. The only exception to this rule is when an API needs to be changed with a patch due to a bug that can't be fixed without such a change. In general, you should be safe developing for either and be available to deploy on both: We work hard to not change API interfaces within one version. In case there are incompatibilities, recompile with the proper API will help in most cases (IMHO)

And, of course, EE has some more plugins, but this means that EE has some more plugins that CE does not have, including their API.
